Making Numbers Count: The Art and Science of Communicating Numbers with Chip Heath, PhD ’91

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 23, 2021 - 9:00am to 10:00am
Numbers are becoming increasingly important in society but our brains weren't built for numbers. How can we translate millions and billions and milliseconds and nanometers into things we can comprehend and use? This talk reveals some insights from a new book, Making Numbers Count (Publication date: January 2022), that provides vivid before-and-after examples that transform a dry number into something that makes people say, “Wow, now I get it!”
Chip Heath, PhD ’91, the Thrive Foundation for Youth Professor in the Graduate School of Business, Emeritus. Professor Heath spent years teaching classes on organizations, why they work and why they don't.  He is the co-author of four New York Times bestsellers, including Made to Stick and The Power of Moments. He has helped over 350 startups refine their mission and strategy.  His newest book, Making Numbers Count, will be published in January 2022.
